Description

Half a million dollars will be Celeste Thorne’s reward for spending four years of her life in total isolation. No faces. No voices. No way to leave.  

Since Celeste has never really worried about being alone, the generous paycheck she’ll receive for her participation in the solitary psychological experiment seems like easy money.  

When she finds an injured hiker in the woods bordering her living compound, her strictly governed world is thrown into disarray. But even as she struggles with the morality of breaking the rules of the experiment, Celeste can’t deny her growing attraction to the kind and enigmatic Olivia Soldano. Still, how much can you really trust a stranger? And how much can you trust yourself when you know all the faces you’ve seen and voices you’ve heard for the past three years have only been your imagination?  

But what’s real? Celeste’s reality may lie somewhere between the absolute truth and a carefully constructed deception.

Audio book even better

I thought that reading a book could not be improved on. I was wrong. Abby Craden has brought this excellent book to life. I cannot think of a better narrator to do EJ Noyes books into the audio world. This book should be number one in a number of categories not just Lesbian Romance. I have already preordered EJ’s next book and can’t wait.

Alone...Very Intense!

I really like E.J. Noyes as an author and Abby Craden as narrator. That is a great combination. That said, I wasn’t certain I could handle the “alone” theme for 3-4 years. Picture this: no faces, no music, no tv, no Internet, no phone. Yikes...no phone! Celeste had the motivation to try, and with difficulty succeeded....until a stranger arrived. Celeste questioned her sanity, worried about breaking rules of her contract, and made her decision. I really liked the book and the varied emotions conveyed. The story will grab you and keep ahold until the last line. And Abby Craden...is spectacular!

Meh!

Wasn't a bad book but just long and drawn out. While the plot was an interesting one and could've had so many twists, it was so slow and almost boring in some parts, eventually being somewhat anticlimactic. The narrator was fabulous tho, she is on eof my favorites, so I expected no less. Overall, I would not waste an entire credit on this, maybe if you catch a sale.

Well done

A very intriguing read that I enjoyed immensely.
E.J. Noyes has written a page turner that will have you laughing one minute and sniffling the next.
And Abby Cradens narration is the proverbial icing on the cake. A must read or listen (or both).

Excellent psychological thriller

First time I have listened to a book by this author. Her character development is marvelous, the way she shows us how Celeste coped with her abusive upbringing and how she now copes over new developments during the course of the book. What happens when Olivia is added to her private world. An interesting book for anyone looking for an unusual twist and turns in the story with a romance thrown in.

Slow Build, But Paid Off

It took me a minute or several to become really invested. However, I continued to listen and in the end I really enjoyed the intelligence and emotional depth in the writing. It is not an ordinary scenario which I found really pleasant as well.

Another winner

Even though unlike many listeners I'm not a fan of this narrator, I thoroughly enjoyed the audio version of this wonderful book. Psychological (but not a thriller), emotional and beautifully exploring human feelings and reactions. I enjoyed every minute of it and I'm sure I'll listen to this book again and again. Brilliant.

Interesting, thrilling listen in the time of social distancing

Picked this book because seemed of interest as social isolation was being recommended for covid pandemic. Wasn’t sure as Noyes is a new author for me and found it’s plot much more intriguing than initially thought - the twists and reveals were very well done. Abby Craden’s voice as always was wonderful. Would definitely recommend.

PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!!

E.J. Notes "ALONE" is by far one of THE BEST books I've ever read!!! DO NOT miss the opportunity to listen to Abby Craden narrate it on audible.....I HAVE NO WORDS!!! Thank you for this book E.J., Celeste & Olivia's story reached down inside and took me places I never would have thought by imagining myself alone in the world for years! Their story of love and redemption is like nothing I've ever experienced in a book before......and I've read plenty of AWESOME lesfic!!!! Not sure how it's possible to be this FANTASTIC of a writer, but E.J. NAILS IT!!!

Interesting character study..

..and what may happen when you are all alone :D
And although I found the narrator outstanding, the writing very good and the main protagonist likeable, I didnt like the lovestory.
I found it a little fucked up, if I am serious.
*sorry.spoilers*
I found the beginning very interesting and Celeste and her "companions" funny. Her day to day was described very good and I was in suspence what would happen next.
When Olivia arrived I found it to be forced and her and her behavior in the end kind of creepy. 😬
For someone who can overlook that and romantizice such behavior its a good audiobook.

Wow, what an intense book

Wow, what an intense book. First of all, Abby Craden did one hell of a job. Really well narrated! Plus, the story isn't a light one, you need to be in the mood to like it. But so so good!

Wow! What a story, what a narration!

This is an outstanding WLW novel but also a very touching and gripping story about loneliness and healing. Abby Craden is performing it congenial. Many Thanks to both of you!

WOW!

Ich habe soeben das Hörbuch beendet und bin sprachlos, mitgenommen und traurig.
Sprachlos, weil Abby Craden sich mit dieser Interpretation selbst übertroffen hat. Ich habe schon einige der von ihr gelesenen Bücher gehört und jedes war wunderbar. Ich mag einfach ihre Stimme und was sie damit ausdrücken kann.
Mitgenommen, weil das Buch und die Geschichte von E. J. Noyes so atmosphärisch und einfühlsam geschrieben ist, die Charaktere mich "gepackt" und nicht wieder losgelassen haben.
Traurig, weil das alles, dieser Genuss aus Story und dieser grandiosen Leseperformance von Abby Craden nun vorbei sind. Dieses Erlebnis wirkt in mir nach muss ich gestehen. Und trotzdem bin ich versucht das Audible Book direkt nochmal zu hören. Einfach ein Hörgenuss in englischer Sprache. Absolute Empfehlung!
